My voice takes a little processing, *very little processing* other wise 
it sounds harsh because it has a very high peak to average, but it 
probably puts the duty cycle at 30% or less where most voices fall.
I really dislike signals with a lot of compression or the ALC set so it 
picks up every sound in the house or shop, much like the little tape 
recorders used to do with the gain full on until it picked up some 
audio. I find highly compressed signals difficult to understand.  I'm 
not sure what their settings are but I hear a number of stations that 
sound like they are in a deep well, or very large room with solid walls 
to reflect the sounds.
